Greetings to 12th Russian-Finnish Cultural Forum

October 6, 2011

Dmitry Medvedev sent greetings to participants and guests at the 12th Russian-Finnish Cultural Forum.

The telegram reads, in part:

“This meeting has brought together over 300 representatives of intelligentsia and non-governmental organisations, ministries, and parliaments from our two nations in Saransk. You will be looking into the problem of maintaining national self-identity in the age of globalisation and exchanging views on possible ways to create dialogue between various ethnic cultures.

I count on the results of your forum’s work to help implement new bilateral initiatives in the humanitarian sector, and to promote effective Russian-European cooperation in this important area.”

The 12th Russian-Finish Cultural Forum is being held in Saransk, the capital of Mordovia. Its theme is “Ethnic Culture in a Globalising World.”
